Gray Television hires Van Susteren for local stations

NEW YORK (AP) — Cable news veteran Greta Van Susteren is trying out local TV by joining Gray Television, which owns stations in more than 90 markets across the United States.

Van Susteren will be chief national political analyst for the Gray stations, and is developing two nationally syndicated shows for the company. She's keeping her current job as host of a program for Voice of America that airs outside of the U.S.

Van Susteren owns a rare TV trifecta: she hosted programs on CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC. But she says candidates in the upcoming presidential election will be eager to target audiences in certain states, and Gray is well situated to provide access.

She said in an interview Thursday that she believes local stations will become much more influential.
